& Having Fun

Hello again :) Not sure how I missed this one :)  while I was blogging in the order that I was making the layouts. I made this one from Nicole's Demystifying Clustering class, this was the lesson before the one I just posted. This is my husband Dave and our grandson Zachary having a very special moment. Dave got out a harmonica and showed Zachary how to play it. The 2nd photo is Dave saying "Hey you got it!" Zachary sure was having fun with it.
Love this layout :) Has to be one of my favorite pictures of Dave and Zachary together, it took a long time for Zachary to warm up to Pappy and so glad to see these moments. It was fun to use embellishments from a school kit and use it on a layout like this, learning as we grow in life :) I followed Nicole's layout format that she did on my layout. I added a bit more mist than what she did so I had to back it with cardstock so it wasn't to overly wavy. Yep, I'm learning as I go too.
 Isn't this just the cutest picture of these 2 having so much fun :) I used mainly last month's and January's  counterfeit kits Color Splash and Brighter Year Ahead for this layout. Papers from the January kit and embellishments from the February kit :) I also used the prompt  Challenge #17 - Inspired by photos we love Love this photo :) not sure why it took me so long to scrap it :p
the top corner cluster
the smallest cluster but it had that big chipboard piece so thought that was sufficient :) but I added a couple more pieces to the cluster
The last cluster also includes the title. Love how they are having fun and that made for a good title for the layout too. See you all later this weekend :) Another layout for Calvinball too :)


  1. OMGosh Tina, I am loving this layout! I love the papers you used and I love your clustered embellishment, especially the chipboard piece that says "today is a great day...". That is so perfect! We also had a little one that took a while to warm up to Papaw, but was so glad when she did since he is no longer here. Precious photo Tina and I can certainly see why you love this picture. I love it too. Hugs, Brenda

  2. Really nice, I like how you've repeated rectangles across the page in various ways.

  3. You've created such a meaningful page for this special moment. I love this clustered embellishment idea!
